It’s summer time, and there are tons of adventures to be had for two mini donkeys on a bustling ranch like Lucky Three. Today, Spuds and Augie explore the hay field with Meredith and test their bravery against a fearsome, loud machine.
She’s kinda silly, Augie. Who ever heard of saying “how do you do” to a swather, Augie?
“Hey, Augie…watcha doin’?!
“I’m practicing my halter stance…you know, four-square!”
Miniature donkeys Spuds and Augie tried out some new moves in the indoor arena!
Check out the rest of the pictures below!
“Hey, Augie! Vacuuming isn’t scary when Mom is the same size as us!”
“That is so true! And she is really careful not to hurt us!”
“Say Spuds, what are the long lines for?”…”Who cares, Augie, when there’s oats on the floor?!”
“Okay Augie, you get to go first! Walk on!”
“I get it! This is why she wanted us to go ahead of her the last lesson!
“And Gee means go right! Wow! This is easy and even kinda fun!”
“I see what you mean, Augie! Haw means go left!”
“And then we just keep on walking ahead of her! This really is fun!”
“Okay, now she has us tied together again. What do you suppose she’s going to do now?”
“Hey Spuds, Now we get to walk on together. I think I like the games she plays with us!”
“And now a back up…we can do that!”
“You little guys are the best! Thanks for a great job!”

Our mini donkeys Spuds and Augie got all dressed up and went for a little turn in the round pen, as they successfully completed their first attempt at ground-driving. Check out what they had to say:
It’s a special time in any young equine’s life, when he makes the transition from boy to… gelding. Our brave mini donkeys Spuds and Augie recently made the switch, thanks to the steady hand of our trusted veterinarian and a little something to encourage their naptime. When they woke up, the procedure was already done… perhaps it was only a dream?
Spuds and Augie had a very special adventure this week. Though the two mini donkeys have been getting along with each other and the mules in the neighboring stalls, they’d never met the other “minis” on the ranch—Frances, Franklin and Mirage. That changed today when they all came out for a playdate in the indoor arena. Seeing all these little guys working together really proves that size doesn’t matter!
